FLORAL arrangements that captured the feel of a country garden or resembled a historical event were on display at two charity flower festivals in Huntingdonshire.
A feast of colours lined St Mary's Church in Houghton on June 9 and 10 - all created to represent the theme 2007: An Eventful Year.
These included displays which resembled famous people and historical events.
The weekend, which raised more than £3,000, concluded with a festival concert.
The money will go towards paying for church repairs and an extension.
Carol Jennings, who helped organise the event, said: "We were really busy and, when I tried to attend the Sunday evening concert, I couldn't get in the church.
